More Than One Way to do Crafting

The two skeins of the Embers spin
The two skeins of the Embers spin

As with most of my weekends, I spent it crafting.  Do you realize that there is more than one way to craft?  Yes, I was creating tangible items when I spun the Embers roving into yarn.  But I also did some virtual crafting when I made iron ore into iron pick axes in Minecraft.  I find both of these types of crafting enjoyable for their own distinct reasons.

Spring has Finally Sprung

The four skeins finished
These are the four skeins I finished recently.

It’s wonderful that spring has finally decided to show herself.  I wonder what happened to her.  Someone must have insulted her pretty bad for her to wait this long to come out.  I’m glad she’s finally back because the weather this weekend was wonderful.  I had all the windows in my home open, letting in the fresh air.

My lilac bush is starting to sprout leaves and I can’t wait to smell its flowers’ fragrance.  The jury is still out as to whether or not the sage and lavender made it through the harsh winter.  It’s not looking so good for them at this moment.  I still need to plant the willows I got in late February, but they should take easily so I can cut sticks for the bun sisters to enjoy.

This Weather is a Drag…

Sleeping Yuki
The only thing you can do in the sudden heat is nap. Zzzzzz…..

I’m going to pretend I live in the United Kingdom and talk about the weather we had this past weekend.  You can chalk it up to the fact that I watched way too many Mumbo Jumbo Minecraft videos.  However, there wasn’t much choice on Saturday.  I could barely move with the sudden increase in temperature and the bun sisters were little furry puddles on the floor.

Rambling on a Monday Morning

Fractal Spin as of Monday Morning
This is today’s project so far. Check back later for the end result.

It’s Monday morning and the bun sisters are enjoying fresh hay while I sit at my computer trying to figure out what to write.  It will probably be another rambling post, since I don’t have a set topic for Mondays.

The weather is overcast and somewhat chilly with light blue heading this way.  I don’t think it will amount to more than a dusting if I even see one of those white “things” falling from the sky.  Rumor has it that the temperatures are going to warm up later this week.  Could that imaginary season of spring actually be heading this way?  Nah.  It’s all myth and legends, I tell ya’.

April Fool’s, a Day Late and a Dollar Short

Things that can make you cry
Things that can make you cry: Snow on your deck on April 2nd!

Yeah, so I woke up this morning to find that Mother Nature has the worst sense of humor of anyone else I know.  She also has a lousy sense of timing too.  Just look at the picture!  Really?  Yesterday was April Fool’s Day, but you wouldn’t know it from the mess on my deck today.  And it’s still coming down!

Yesterday I had the laundry drying on the deck and all the windows open as the sun shined.  The weather forecast seemed to be an April Fool’s joke so I ignored it.  Good thing I don’t have any plans to leave the house today.  The joke is on me (and everyone else in the area).
